So Not Enjoying the Waiting

Notes from Boo’s Desk x


I’m not great at playing the waiting game. I know, you’re surprised at that aren’t you Winking smile but its true. For years I thought I was super patient but as I’ve grown older I’ve come to realise the opposite is true of me. Take, for instance, our forth coming house move. Honestly, if it was up to me I’d have moved months ago. I’m so eager to get going that all this waiting gives me the jitters lol. I understand the need for patience, the sense in waiting and I know it will be for the best in the long run but oh my goodness, I am so not enjoying the waiting….


The funny thing is that it doesn’t always apply. Take a look at Christmas for example. All of you who know me know this is my all time favourite holiday and my favourite day is not Christmas Day but Christmas Eve. I adore the anticipation, the surprises to come, the excitement of it all; so sometimes waiting is the most enjoyable thing of all.

For me, the one thing that has been truly worth waiting for has been finding my Music Man, Jay. Sometimes you wait for something for so long you don’t realise you already have it. I know there’s still a lot of waiting to do for some things with us but I’ve realised that waiting for those things is like Christmas Eve, its all so worth the waiting because he was worth waiting for.



What are you waiting for? Are you glad you waited, was it all worth the waiting for you too? Share your thoughts and layouts with us here at Booland. We’d love to hear your waiting stories.

And to help the process along, I’m pleased to say you don’t need to wait for my latest New Release. Its right here.

Seems there is a little glitch with my store and my last 2 collections are showing in alphabetical order instead of the normal Super Saver and Page Kit at the top.  The programmer is working on this and it will hopefully be back to normal by Wednesday but in the mean time you have to travel a little farther down the page to find these items.  Thank you for your patience!



Of all the lessons I have learned in life, one of the most valuable is that perspective matters. Take waiting; waiting by the phone for a call or waiting to find true love. Waiting can be marked by angst and anxiety; but change your perspective and waiting by the phone becomes looking forward to conversing with a friend, and waiting for true love turns into the anticipation of everlasting companionship. In lovely shades of lavender and pink, Waiting was inspired by this notion of perspective. Decorative elements include flowers, ribbon, and yes, even a phone! You’ll find a gilded cage, and a bird long waiting, finally set free. Whatever your theme, you’ll be sure to create an elegant layout with this collection, and perhaps even display your photos with a new, more enlightened perspective.

I am forever grateful to my Blossoms.  There is much work that goes on behind the scenes to bring each collection to this final stage.  These are truly some remarkable women and I wanted to take a moment to praise them to the rooftops!  I have some “behind the scenes” work going on with my blog too and very soon you will get to meet each of the Blossoms up close and personal.
